Facilities Assistant (Former Employee), Jeffersonville, IN – May 15, 2014
Pros: long lunches if needed, willing to work with you on hrs.
Cons: dysfunctional family feeling at times
Very quiet office. Everyone nice as a dysfunctional family normally is. Management and student advisor were about the only ones people felt they could talk to. Student's did not feel as if they could talk to Dean. Job was very fulfilling always learning something new. Absolutely loved job to point of crying when position was over.
Peaceful environment with opportunities to serve and help others

Finance Advisor (Current Employee), Jeffersonville, IN – November 2, 2012
Pros: easy drive to work
Cons: not enough staff, working hours
Since our terms are 8 weeks, I have the same routine each day. I work very hard to make sure our student’s financial obligation has been met for the next term. It is usually met with financial aid, but our university also has students who use employer reimbursement and pay out of pocket for their tuition. In addition, I work closely with academic advisor – more... to monitor the academic progress of our student.
I have learned several things about financial aid and employer reimbursement. Also, I have learned the academic portion of the university. Academic plays an important role in the student’s eligible for financial aid.
I work with a very diverse group of people and I think that gives us character.
The hardest part of my job is dealing with financial aid and not having enough diversity in my job position. The most enjoyable part of my job is helping students reach their academic goal. – less
Baseball Coach (Former Employee), Ottawa, KS – March 27, 2012
A typical week for me was about 80 hrs of work from the 5 am lifting to closing the batting cages at 10 or 11 pm after practice along with all of the administrative and practice duties between. Rigorous hours spent in order to provide the lessons and support to develop my players to the highest degree on and off of the field of play. One on One meetings – more... with players everyday all week to guide them in lifes important decisions. – less
Admissions Counselor (Former Employee), Phoenix, AZ – May 15, 2011
Overall, Ottawa University is an alright place to work. The environment is friendly - however, the values leadership displays do not meet with the overall values of the school. I worked at the Phoenix campus in Admissions and I only hope they have started back being ethical
